DIR Luis Buñuel | Mexico | 1962 | 93 min

A group of high-society friends are invited to a mansion for dinner and find themselves inexplicably unable to leave, in Luis Buñuel’s daring masterpiece THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL (El ángel exterminador). Made just one year after the director’s inter­na­tional sensation VIRIDIANA, this film, full of eerie comic absurdity, continues Buñuel’s wicked takedown of the rituals and dependencies of the frivolous upper classes. In Spanish with English subtitles.
